World's best knitting blogs

I knit a lot. I read knitting blogs a lot. Here's my take on the best knitting blogs--from beginning knitter to pro, and everything in between.

Yarn Harlot

The Yarn Harlot has been blogging since blogs were a thing, and knitting for a much longer time than that. She's from Toronto (yay!) and describes herself as a "knitting humour writer." She's pretty much considered a goddess in knitting circles.

Knitting Blog

The Oregonian has a knitting blog! This alone makes me think Oregon must be the most awesome state ever, even though I'm Canadian. Here's their blurb: "Get the latest Knitting tips, events, news and columns from The Oregonian's Peggy McMullen and Mims Copeland. Get articles about Crochet, Dyeing, Yarn, Patterns and more at OregonLive.com"

Samurai Knitter

Julie describes herself thus: "I'm currently a stay at home mother, freelance writing on my off time, wondering how I became part of the ten thousand year old tradition of raising the kids while creating textiles. I grew up in NE Ohio dairy country, married a sailor, lived in Hawaii ten years, lived in SC for five years, then moved back to culture shock and confusion."

Knitspot - Anne Hanson Knitting Pattern Designer Blog and Knitting Patterns Shop

Anne Hanson designs and knits some of the most elegant pieces out there--you can find her patterns and her blog here. "The exact, right place where knitting happens (wherever that may be)."

westknits

Westknits is all about colour, geometric design, and awesomeness. Stephen West's patterns make me happy. You should give them a try.

Stolen Stitches

Carol Feller's knitting designs are beautiful--and her blog is a delight to read and look at.

Brooklyn Tweed

"I always liked to make things with my hands, even as a young child. I began crochet & crochet lace-making first when I was very small, then picked up knitting in high school. My first knitted garment was a U-neck vest - at the time I could only knit and purl, so stockinette (or reverse stockinette) were the only fabrics I was using!"

mercedes knits

Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark shows you how to tackle tricky knitting techniques--and she designs some pretty awesome knitting patterns.

Follow Hugs For Your Head

Mary offers "brain food for crafty people: free knitting patterns, craft tips, and trivia on knitting, spinning, sewing"...and delightful commentary as well! This blog really is like a warm hug and a nice cup of tea with a friend...who knits.

tiny owl knits

This is the home of the famous Beekeeper's Quilt, aka the hexipuff blanket, which I've been working on for ages now. Okay, really it's only been since September, but it feels long. Anyway, here's where it came from, and Tiny Owl has loads more besides. Guaranteed fun.

Woolly Wormhead - unique & original knitted Hat designs

Woolly Wormhead is a hat designer, and oh! her hats! She uses interesting constructions and beautiful yarns to create hats you want to wear in August, in a heatwave...because they're really that awesome.
